I get the argument for a campus setting in a college town, but it seems like the upgraded vitality of downtown could present plenty of great counter-arguments combined with some strategic tax incentives.
Google already had a significant presence in Boulder, and has for years. It's one of their key locations outside of California.

Watch Amazon. They are actively looking for 150k SF of space in downtown Denver. I could see that being just the beginning.

As for developers who can do 700+, Hines has shown that they believe in this market and certainly have the capability to build skyscrapers. If 1144 15th is a success they will continue to invest in downtown Denver.
